Theories of global warming, polar cap melting and coastal flooding have been linked to global rain forest destruction and consumption of fossil fuels. Remedies under consideration related to rain forests and reduction of consumption of fossil fuels are unlikely to be adequate for economic and political reasons......a replacement approach, e.g. to convert the great deserts of the world to mangrove forests, might be a more positive and politically, even economically, acceptable approach to counter de-forestation---Dr. Gordon Sato

Field class session in mangrove tree husbandry. Mangroves are being planted on a bare 40 acre test lot. The leaves are eaten by camels and goats, branches serve as fuel and the roots provide a natural habitat for farmed fish
